Seeing With Vision

Your eyes will deceive you at every turn - stop believing them!

It is easy to look at the world and see only the negative.

We see suffering and conflict. People agitate and disappoint us at every turn. We see ourselves as unworthy, redeemable, and undeserving of love.

But what we do not understand is that we are looking through a veil — A dark and dismal cloth discolored by the stains of previous experiences and feelings. Smeared with our thoughts of inadequacy and belief and lack. Our fear of loneliness and our apparent vulnerability.

When we lift the veil and let the light shine through, we see in a new way.

We see with vision.

We see through the Eye of God.

We see with the eyes of love.

When we see with vision, we see our place in the Sunship. We see that we are a child of God and that we are forever safe and secure in his strong, yet gentle hands.

And there is nothing to fear.

This is God’s gift.

And when we call upon this gift…

We understand Him.

We understand eternity.

An Affirmation for today:

Through a veil of darkness

I see the world

Tension expressed

Through my fingers curled

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Pain and suffering apparent

at every turn

Irritation and anger

through my body burns

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

I ask of you Lord

allow me to see with love

I ask of you your gift

vision from above

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Allow me to see

this world through your eyes

A world of peace

and endless azure skies

You can see my books, my social links and other good stuff here:

“Who is this guy?” Is often asked

By those who see my work

So with my love of poetry

I felt compelled to write in verse

- - - - - - - - - -

Father of two daughters

And a cute quartet of dogs

But thankfully, as of yet

Not a single toad or frog

- - - - - - - - - -

Husband of some 20 years

A lover of Pickleball

But above all else a Child Of God

And loving brother to all

- - - - - - - - - -

A writer of things of spirit and soul

A poet perchance uncouth

A sailor to the call of esoteric lore

A seeker of the truth

- - - - - - - - - -

A fragile and sensitive soul

Creative to a fault

Striving to be a friend and man

Worthy of his salt

- - - - - - - - - -

If fortune was to smile on us

And in good things never lack

Perhaps we could meet one day

Over coffee, hot and black

- - - - - - - - - -

But since that day might never come

(Not knowing how things go)

You may use this link my friend

And offer to me one below!

- - - - - - - - - -

Have a day filled with wonderment and Blessed Light!
